Synopsis: Bob Drifter is a substitute teacher with a secret. He seems like no more than a polite young man who loves to read and mentor students in his free time. Yet, on the side, Bob takes part in some rather strange extracurricular activities that soon attract the attention of local police. For some reason, people have a way of dying around him.
It’s not his fault. Maybe he just hangs around people who are already dying. Maybe he has bad timing. But Bob knows better. He has a secret mission that must be completed before he ends up in prison or raises the ire of the most frightening individual in the supernatural world. No pressure.
A terrifying new force has set foot into Bob’s life, and a string of ghastly mutilations follows this figure wherever he goes. Now, Bob has to keep his own secrets, protect his students, and fulfill his mentor’s wishes. Welcome to the world of those who watch over the dead.
Bob is no ordinary school teacher. His students love him and he has unique ways of making learning fun, but Bob also has a secret. He helps transport the souls of dead people and when a local cop becomes suspicious Bob's life becomes complicated. With his secret in jeopardy, Bob struggles to complete his tasks while evading the police when he discovers something sinister at play. Something that endangers the souls of everyone on earth. Can Bob and the other Journeymen stop the evil Grimm before it's too late?
The Journals of Bob Drifter is a thrilling fantasy that's never short on action. I enjoyed the array of interesting characters which I found well developed and credible. The author also has a gift for storytelling and creates a captivating and unique tale that is hard to put down.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
